The Tampa Bay Rays continue their series in Miami tonight vs. the Miami Marlins. All up to date odds and trends can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Marlins have now lost 4 games in a row after dropping game one of the series to the Rays on Friday. The Marlins bats were silenced by the Rays staff as they scored just 1 run on seven hits. Ricky Nolasco did not have a terrible game, but still lost his 4th game of the season. Carlos Zambrano, who is having a great bounce back season, will take the hill tonight for the Marlins. He has won 4 of his last 5 starts and has only let up 53 hits in 73+ innings pitched on the year.
The Rays took over first place all by themselves on Friday as they won and the Orioles lost. The Rays offense did more than enough for a pitching staff who went to the bullpen early and pitched great allowing just one run. Matt Moore will take the hill tonight and the young pitcher won his last start after losing 4 decisions in a row. He will look to build on that success tonight.
Miami is 5-1 in their last six interleague games against a left handed starter, 1-4 in their last five games as a favorite, and 6-1 in Zambrano’s last seven starts. Tampa Bay is 6-2 in their last eight games against the N.L. East, 14-6 in their last 20 interleague games, and 0-4 in their last four game two of a series. The Rays have won five in a row in this series.
We think the Marlins will come out slugging tonight and we like the over on those mugging South Florida nights. Give us the over on the run total in Miami at thesportsbook.
